Set to Nirvana’s iconic Come As You Are, Netflix gave us a (roughly) 1-minute glimpse into The Defenders: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

Approximately a month ago we posted a photo on our Instagram account of one of the trains in San Diego with teaser graphics of a flaming chain. At the time many associated the flaming chain with the character Hellfire but this last week during one of the panels at San Diego Comic-Con, it was confirmed that the Spirit of Vengeance will be coming to Agents of Shield this Fall. After the panel, Marvel went on to confirm that Gabriel Luna will be playing the Robbie Reyes iteration of Ghost Rider later this year. Are you looking forward to the latest addition or AoS?

When Gravity Falls ended we were left with a haunting image of Bill Cipher somewhere in the “real world”. The final(?) cipher of the show once decoded said:
HIDDEN DEEP WITHIN THE WOODS A BURIED TREASURE WAITS
Mario felt that one of the clues (if not, the statue of Bill itself) was located at Griffith Park. This week Twitter user @ramblewheels found “clue #4″… at Griffith Park. Mario

In 1923 Walt Disney famously moved to California and conquered the animation world but before he did that he needed a place to stay. This place belonged to his uncle Robert and aunt Charlotte in Los Feliz. The bungalow style home is in danger of being demolished but has enough historical significance (since Walt and Roy were both married there and it’s where they started the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio before moving down the road to an actual studio) that the home might be saved. As of this post a temporary hold has been placed on the demolition of the home. We’ll update with more info as it becomes available. Check out the home via Google Maps below.

Frozen Northern Lights will be a series of animated shorts to supplement a collection of books coming on this month. The series will be animated LEGO shorts but we didn’t feel that they resembled classic LEGO figures and doesn’t “feel” like LEGO. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
